    It's a good list. Couple of thoughts:

    Linden Gaydosh should be the #1.
    Ben D'Aguliar was originally recruited to Arkansas. Lots of upside.
    Bo Lokombo is a rocket on the way up. Potentially the best athlete in the Draft Class. Probably NFL bound.
    Stephen Alli has 3 career catches in 25 career games.
    Jesse Joseph is currently injured but still holding his starting job.

    Some other names to note:
    Two NCAA bouncebacks in QB Myles Gibbon (not a true bounceback as he graduated from South Alabama) and DE Tom Black
    In the age of the non-import running back both Eddie Houghton (Holy Cross) and Rotrand Sene (Montreal) are great prospects.
    Brent Urban at Virginia should make the Top 15 by April.
    Tyler Digby is a big TE at Robert Morris - first NCAA catch was a TD.
    Alex Anthony and Michael Dicorce are CIS WR to watch.
    Mike Spence is a DB to watch. Was on the ESPN watch list as a high school senior.

    I wonder if Myles Gibbons will even get a look. Didn't play much in Louisianna & now playing for a weak CIS team at the U ot T. Maybe he makes them better but will it make a difference on draft day? I kind of doubt it.

    Myles split duty at South Alabama and started 11 games there. He's the reason why York has any wins so far.

    Will that be good enough for the CFL Dinosaurs to draft him??? What excuses will they use if they don't?? Not even Top 15.

    Well I think he would've done his draft stock better staying at South Alabama but I understand that he wanted to be involved with the York rebuild and not have to look over his shoulder every time a pass hit the turf instead of the receiver. Tough situation at South Alabama with 4 QBs in the stable.

    The Top 15 is a little bit of a game too. Teams aren't showing their hand totally (especially with the September one) and so the clear cut leaders are mentioned while the potential first/second round sleepers aren't.

    Examples:
    In 2010 Akeem Foster was ranked #5 in September but off the list by April and ended up drafted #25th overall.
    Nasser Jamal was ranked #11 in September but off the list by April and ended up drafted #40th overall.
